SC Outdoor Press Association Conference

The South Carolina Outdoor Press Assn. (SCOPe) held its annual conference last weekend at The Territories (http://www.theterritories.net/) on the banks of the Saluda River. PJ Perea of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) gave a seminar on predator hunting, and two custom turkey call makers, Irving Witt and Steve Mann, spoke and donated turkey calls to raise funds for SCOPe.

The Territories hosted a couple of deer hunts, and professional bass fisherman Davy Hite allowed the use of his property for a deer hunt as well. SCOPe member Teach Corley put on a fishing tournament Saturday morning with participants fishing the Saluda River. South Carolina Sportsman Magazine editor Dan Kibler took 1st place in the tournament's bass division, and outdoor humorist Jim Mize took the panfish division with his flyrod.

Other fishing trips included shellcracker fishing on Lake Murray with Capt. Doug Lown, and catfishing with Capt. Chris Simpson (http://www.fightindablues.com/).
